Bought this 6” Delta benchtop jointer a few months ago for my shop. I choose the benchtop version because of limited space and the fact that most of my projects are small, boxes, clocks, etc. I think that I have made a mistake on this one, I have had several problems with it. The first thing I noticed was that the outfeed table had a dip on the end farthest from the blades. I brought it to the authorized factory repair center and they replaced the outfeed table. Since then, I have not been able to successfully joint a single piece of wood. It seems that I always end up with a smooth edge – but the board ends up tapered – one end is wider than the other.
I hesitate to blame Delta until I have had the opportunity to ensure that I am using it correctly (I hate to blame Delta before I make sure it’s not user error).
Be interested in hearing from anyone that has or has used this jointer.
